DoXFS 0.7.1 is a bug fix release. Primarily when creating a topic, the server returns an error, but the topic is actually created.

Preliminary DoXFS Server now available for CVS checkout

The preliminary release of the DoXFS Server is now available for checkout through CVS. The DoXFS Server is the first component of the architectural shift I have been telling everybody about for months now. This code is not by any means complete, but it should start to give you an idea of where the application is headed. The API reference manual for the DoXFS server is almost complete, but this API is intended for the client libraries and not for a user interface. The user interface should use the client API (which I am currently working on). Have fun!

Added PHP Extension

I finally broke down and wrote an extension to PHP to access the XFS extended attributes directly. In previous versions this was done by shelling out to the system and calling the attr command. Now there are native PHP functions (see README file in php_module) that access the extended attributes. See the INSTALL file under php_module for instructions on how to add the extension. Besides a tremendous performance boost, the extensions also help clean up the code a little bit.
